Springfield XD(M) 3.8 compact .45 ACP
This is my everyday carry gun. While it’s a bit heavier than other options on the market, it brings a lot to the table and it’s a little fussy with reloads. This is a polymer 45 that offers great capacity in a nice CCW size. The short mag holds 9 round and the extended mag holds 13 plus one in the barrel. The gun offers the best accuracy I have seen in a polymer weapon to date. Springfield paid close attention to many little features that make this a joy to own and fire. The M series added better grip to the slide rail for positive traction when loading and unloading. The barrel lends great accuracy. The trigger is a good SA trigger out the box but improves to great with a little break-in. One feature that really makes this weapon is the adjustable backstrap. Springfield offered 3 sizes to fit most any hand but they went a step further by offering 3 sizes of mag sleeve to make sure your extended magazine always matches nicely to your chosen grip. With the standard addition of Springfield accessories (paddle holster, 2 mag holster, load assist) this is a bargain.
